“Dumb and Dumber To” strikes yet again as another moronic film filled with overly exaggerated, pointless humor. This is the third movie in the series, following the original, “Dumb and Dumber” and “Dumb and Dumberer.”
As with the previous two films, “Dumb and Dumber To” lives up to its title as a mediocre and less than satisfying comedy that will only appeal to a very slim audience who enjoys the kind of humor that it presents.
Co-written and directed by brothers Bobby and Peter Farrely, the movie is a continuation of the story of best friends Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) as they set off on another wild adventure.
“Dumb and Dumber To” begins with Harry visiting and taking care of Lloyd at a mental hospital that he has been staying at for 20 years.
Lloyd is paralyzed in a wheelchair and cannot move, function or speak. During the visit, Lloyd jumps out of his wheel chair and exclaims “got ya” at Harry and explains he had been tricking him into thinking he was paralyzed the entire last two decades.
Harry finds this absolutely hilarious and thinks this is the best prank that has ever pulled. The two leave the mental hospital together as if nothing had changed in the past 20 years.
After arriving back at their old apartment where Harry lives with a new roommate who replaced Lloyd while he was in the mental hospital, Harry reveals to Lloyd one of his kidneys is failing and he needs to find a donor in order to survive.
They set off to Harry’s parent’s house that he hasn’t been to in decades. His parents are overjoyed to finally see him after such a long time.
Even though his parents are Asian, Harry does not realize he is adopted and asks if one of them would be willing to donate a kidney to him. His parents drop the news on him that he is not their biological child and they cannot help him replace his kidney.
On their way out, Harry’s dad gives him his mail he has saved since it started piling up in 1991 when Harry left his parents.
He opens a letter from a past lover of his, Fraida Felcher (Kathleen Turner), that says she is pregnant and needs Harry to call her.
Harry is astonished to find out that he has a daughter who is 24 years old now.
The duo then set off on a mission filled with many crazy twists and turns to find his daughter so that he can finally meet her and also ask if she could donate one of her kidneys since she is blood related.
After watching this film, it’s apparent that the immature humor is more suited for pre-teen boys who would probably enjoy it more than other audiences.
“Dumb and Dumber To” is a movie that is a little too dumb to be funny and is definitely not suited for everyone.
